>>> very good morning. i'm richard lui in for chris jansing. two big pieces of president obama's second-term agenda moving forward today. the president and vice president are meeting with sheriffs and police chiefs from across the country to talk about guns at the white house. in just over an hour at least three of the chiefs handled the shootings in aurora, colorado, oak creek, wisconsin, and newtown, connecticut. this afternoon a bipartisan group of senators will unveil a plan to deal with immigration. that group there includes four democrats and four republicans. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. >> i'm cautiously optimistic. i see the right spirit. i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> now, the plan will include a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. something many republicans had backed away from until now. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at t
at this number. president obama did win 7 in 10 hispanic voters. big number there. the gop trying to see as you saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >>
this past monday that obama was a liberal? everyone is saying, oh. he is liberal. people knew before he ran for president that he was the most left-wing member of the united take senate and so forth. he ask you about that. this is an endless curiosity for people. why does nobody listen when we say these things? >> writes, i know. people want to believe there is an optimism. you want to believe that the candidate is not really going to turn out to be as bad as he seems. you hope maybe he is just laying to his base and that he will moderate. for obama, that did not turn out to be true. here is the news i think is optimistic -- i bow to no one and how depressed i have been since december 6. i think that inaugural was -- it might very well be the fulfillment of that old irish prayer. although art, let my enemies go too far. because by sketching out a really ambitious left-wing agenda, in addition to the way he campaigned in 2012, in one of the debates he was competing with romney to say that he was a very pro-fossil fuels. he was mr. drilling on federal lands, etc., etc. very pro-traditional en
ahead of this story, senator marco rubio write, "my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to completely, it won't bode well for reform." striking a much friendlier tone on sunday, this is what senator mccain said of the president's effort. >> believe it or not i see a glimmer of bipartisan out there. >> we have president obama out there pushing a plan. does it help? hurt? >> i think it helps. i think it's important we all work to the on this. >> this will be the first time mccain has signed on to any major obama initiative, though mccain supported fiscal legislation, he opposed don't ask/don't tell and the new start treaty. no one is sure how speaker boehner proceeds, does he violate the so-called hastert rule again? by the way, as for what the president does tomorrow, don't expect specific legislation. there was some talk that they might do that. i'm told that the congressional hispanic caucus suggested to the white
to whether you want to expand the base of the party. here's what he writes. obama is arguing that misfortune can strike americans in all forms. a sdabt, a storm, illness, or merely outliving our savings. ryan's budget imposes savage cuts to food stamps, children's health insurance, and other mitigations of suffering for the least fortunate. and ryan also voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. by ryan's definition, if the government is rebuilding your destroyed home, you're a taker too. >> look, this is a straw man argument. the president said earlier that we had suspicions about medicare and taking care of the elderly and feeding poor children. when he sets up these straw men, to affix views to add ver sears that they don't have, to win the argument by default, it's not an honest debate. we want to have a safety net. a safety net that's there for the vulnerable, poor, for people who cannot help themselves. but we don't want to have a culture in this country that encouraging more dependency that saps and drains people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> which pa
of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring in the political panel, "the washington post" nia-malika henderson and latino contributor, raul reyes and michael smerkonish. raul, if people doubt that elections have consequences, look at the issue of immigration
this as president obama heads to las vegas tomorrow to make his own immigration push. now, to the guy at the center the immigration story, arizona republiian senator john mccain, bump the -- one of the eight senators. important guy. important day. you rolled out the pla a day in front of president obama's plan. some in the g.o.p. say this sounds like a blanket amnesty. >> i was also encouraged that speaker boehner said we have to have a comprehensive immigration reform passed with 11 million people living in the shadows of america. many of them have been here for over 10 years. a precondition, that is to secure the borders. our borders are more secure but in arizona, that border is a major drug trafficking route for the drug cartels bringing drugs into the united states so we have to use lot of high-tech and drones and get the border securee that must be done. then we have to move on with this issue. >> senator, an hour ago, senator schumer and yourself talked about what you need do to get this pointed and you say securing the border isber one. is that realistic? we have been trying to do it for 15
doesn't want that. you had $1 trillion in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbers add up. we think that's necessary for growth and opportunity. we think it's necessary to make sure that our kids don't get this debt that they won't be able to handle if we keep going down the path we are on. >> but there are certainly those in the white house who would take issue with what you said or might even say to use your own criticism that's a straw man argume argument. they were prepared to cut additional spending to be part of a bigger agreement that republicans weren't able to agree to. there is more room for spending cuts. it's a matter of how

became treasury secretary as president obama was sworn into office the first time. finance professor dale rosenthal says government- directed taxpayer bailouts helped stabilize the economy. "instead of a big drop, we saw a softer landing but a longer recovery." under secretary geithner, the treasury department participated in bank bailouts despite risky gambles that led to the subprime mortgage collapse. critics say that under giethner, there was no assurance that banks would use their money to lend to business and homeowners. "there was no reportability, no accountability, it was just, 'give me the money and i'll save us.'" "the one part of the stimulus that worked was the money to state and local governments that went to teachers, firefighters, city workers. if that hadn't happened, unemployment would've been significantly worse." there were more bailouts. geithner oversaw $182 billion to insurance and financial services giant aig, which gave millions in bonuses to top executives responsible for aig's financial mess from credit default swaps. the auto bailout of gm and chrysler - the ob
